Knowledge cannot be seen as cumulative (building into a more and more accurate picture of reality) so the theories should be seen as more or less useful in terms of the purposes of the intervention being pursued and there always an agent making choices amongst a plurality of options and we should talk in terms of locally relevant rather than universal standards for choice. At the methodological level respecting the fact that others might have useful insights that we may learn from in constructing our own methodological ideas and the level of methods we can draw upon methods originally produced within other methodologies (Midgley , 2000 , p. 168 ) .
